ThermiSol Oy manufactures and sells plastic-based heat insulation solutions for the construction and industrial sectors. The company operates globally and has two plants, one in Sastamala and one in Rovaniemi. At the beginning of 2016, we started to design a real-time production reporting system based on our Celesta application for ThermiSol to operate as part of their production planning system.
“Celesta was customised to form part of our system, and the most recent deployments related to production reports were carried out in May 2018. The utilisation rate of the functions in which Celesta is used is close to 90 per cent, which is a great result over such a short period”, says Jani Frantsila, logistics manager at ThermiSol Oy.
A Wi-Fi network was built at ThermiSol’s plant for the use of Celesta and upcoming production projects. “Every work area has a separate Android-based mobile device. We use Celesta Plan for system management and Celesta Mobile for reporting. Integrating Celesta into our production planning system has made production reporting quicker, easier and more real-time, as we hoped it would. The real-time tracking of products has made day-to-day operations easier in shipping.”
In general, the deployment of Celesta has gone smoothly, which can also be seen on the satisfied faces of ThermiSol’s employees.
“Our employees have been happy with the new system, as it speeds up and facilitates daily reporting. We have already started to plan further cooperation with Identoi, part of the Sovelluskehittäjät Group, regarding other functions”, Frantsila says.
